Electric Green Swordtail
The exotic nature of this beautiful butterfly is really quite lovely. Its wings offer a fascinating abstract pattern of vibrant green set against a deep, dark background. Natively found in Central Africa, this species name is Graphium Tynderaeus, though it is far better known as the "Electric Green Swordtail". With a rather light touch, I have encased this butterfly in several layers of hand painted resin, following its gentle form to create a very natural appearance. The resin that I use is clear so what you see are the true colors of the butterfly. Though the resin does transmute the colors slightly as it turns the wings semi-transparent giving it an appeal very much like stained glass. The wing span of this magnificent butterfly is 3 5/8", making for a bold and striking presence. This pendant comes on an 18" 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. Certainly a conversation piece, you will enjoy letting your friends know that is, in fact, a real butterfly.
